Top Ten Tuesday: A Bunch of Books With Thanksgiving Scenes

Posted November 22, 2022 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, cozy mystery, historical, mystery/suspense, romance, Top Ten Tuesday / 18 Comments

Happy Tuesday! Today the theme for Top Ten Tuesday is a ‘thankful freebie’ so I decided to look at a bunch of books from the last five years with Thanksgiving scenes in them. For some of these titles, it’s a major part of the story. For others, a more minor role. But they all share the holiday as a common denominator in some way, shape or form.

What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving? For me, it’s getting together with family but I’m not gonna lie – I also my cornbread dressing recipe & my family’s pumpkin pie. Do you have a fave Thanksgiving food?

  2. I finished Honor’s Refuge by Hallee Bridgeman last night. It has a Thanksgiving not soon forgotten! Loved that the epilogue featured a more sedate and love-filled Thanksgiving. You have a great list!

  3. I haven’t read any of these and I’m trying my best to think if I know any books with Thanksgiving scenes….

    We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in SA, so it’s not all that big on my radar. But I will take a look at a few of your suggestions. Plenty to choose from!

  4. A fun post for this week! I actually just finished a book with a Thanksgiving moment in it (Tempt by Melanie Harlow). I feel like there’s actually a lot of books with these moments. I know I’ve come across several throughout the years.

    Thanks for including Snow Angels!
    I like Christmas books that start at Thanksgiving, just like our own celebrations. I start READING Christmas books much earlier than that, though. 🙂
